HOWARD LA BETTE As a result of an inquiry directed to the city manager here, a California resident, who was born and raised in Two Rivers, has discovered that he is a year older than he was giving himself credit for. Also that his first name was Alex and not Howard, which he has been using. These facts developed when a birth certificate was secured from Rev. Father Hugo, at the St. Luke's church. Howard La Bette wrote some time ago from Vallejo, Calif., asking for infor mation as to the date of his birth, he being in the federal employ and it being necessary to secure his birth certificate. He stated that he believed he had been born Nov. 9, 1869. A search of the babtisimal(sic) records show that he was bron Nov. 9. 1868, and that he was christened Alex and not Howard. The certificate of birth and the records were sent forward to California today by City Manager Biehl. Manitowoc Herald News, Friday, April 6, 1928 p.13 Two Rivers section

DAVID LACOUNT, DR. BACK TO THE OLD HOME Dr. La Count 1837 Pioneer Resident, Visits old Friends in Town Dr. David La Count, who has been here on a visit to his old time friend Perry Smith, returned home this afternoon. Mr. La Count is another of the pioneer settlers of Manitowoc, coming here with his parents in 1837, when but a boy, and remaining until 1856, when the family removed to Iowa. A visit to the scenes of his childhood days is a rare treat to Dr. La Count and with others of the pioneer residents he passed many pleasant hours in recounting tales of the day when they were boys in the hamlet on the banks of old Michigan. Dr. La Count's mother is buried here and he makes frequent pilgrimages to her grave. Like Mr. Smith and the others, Dr. La Count is getting old and feeble in health, but he hopes to enjoy a few more visits before the final summons shall call him home. His home is now at Wausau.

CARL/HENRY LADWIG BOY OVER THERE ADDS HIS TRIBUTE TO RED CROSS The following letter has been received by Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ladwig from their son Carl who is in the service in France. The letter was written after the close of the war and has just arrived here. "Tows, France, Dear Parents: I am stationed in a little village called Tows for a few thousands population. I was taking care of gassed soldiers in a field hospital, but now that the war is over we have nothing to do. We go on long hikes which gives us a chance to see part of the country. When we come to a village where the people have never seen any American soldiers they all come rushing out. I was to Tours, a city of 200,000 population and saw the beautiful St. Gatien cathedral which took three hundred and some years to build. I have done quite a little traveling in France and expect to see Paris before I leave. I wish you could see this country dad, see what you would think about raising peace and beans. I bet you would say there's no place like Wisconsin for that. The roses are still in bloom and we are surrounded by miles and miles of grapefields. The people are still busy picking them. We are treated as good as could be wished for so far. We get plenty of good things to eat and the officers are considerate and very fair. As for the French language, I think that I could learn it but the word that I can say best now is "candy" and I like lot's of it too. I have received many things from the Red Cross, among them a sweater which is a dandy. They certainly are doing a wonderful work and we boys appreciate it very much. I am perfectly satisfied with the life here but just the same give me the good old U.S.A. with Old Glory and my friends. I am writing by candle light. Wishing everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and extending greetings to all my friends." Dec. 30, 1918, Manitowoc Herald News

CHRIS. LADWIG AGED MAN INJURED, ARM CAUGHT IN SAW, MAY LOSE MEMBER Chris. Ladwig, Former Bridge Tender, Meets with Accident While Working with Wood Sawing Machine Late Yesterday Chris Ladwig, an aged south side man and formerly employed by the city as tender on the Eighth street bridge, may lose his arm as result of an accident late yesterday. Ladwig was taken to the hospital. Ladwig was assisting a crew of men operating a wood sawing machine for B. Notz and in reaching under the saw to remove a splinter which had become caught, his arm came in contact with the rapidly revolving saw and was terribly lacerated. The muscles of the forearm were ? and deep cuts inflicted in the arm and when examination was made physicians said that the injury was of so serious a nature that amputation of the arm might be necessary. Mr. Ladwig is well known in the city and is a man past 70. He was for years employed as tender on Eighth street bridge. His advanced age makes the injury, in case of amputation more serious.

ERNEST LANDT JOHN GUSTAFSON, TWO RIVERS MAN KILLED IN AUTO ACCIDENT SUNDAY JOHN GUSTAFSON, 45, DEAD UNDER MACHINE WHEN AUTO COLLIDES WITH BUGGY LAST NIGHT ON STREET IN THAT CITY COMPANION IN MACHINE IS REPORTED MISSING Thrown through the windshield and caught under the fender of his machine, when the car was turned completely over as result of a collision with a buggy at Two Rivers last night, John Gustafson, a former Milwaukee man, who has resided at Two Rivers for a year, was killed. The accident, which is the third fatality due to motor vehicle accidents in the county the past three months, happened at 10:30 last night, near the city cemetery at Two Rivers. Gustafson, driving a Ford car, was en route north toward Mishicot, and collided with a buggy driven by Ernest Landt. The force of the collision, which tore a wheel from the Landt buggy turned the automobile completely over, the car being turned upright after the accident. Gustafson with his head cut and injured, ? skull was found under the fender of the car, dead. Landt was uninjured. According to reports, Gustafson had turned out to avoid the buggy and in turning back into the road struck one of the rear wheels which was torn from the buggy. The automobile was thrown completely about and it is believed turned a summersault, hurling Gustafson through the windshield to have the man caught by the fender. Report of the accident was made to the local authorities and to Coroner Falge and District Attorney Schmitz, who are at Two Rivers this afternoon and will probably call an inquest to investigate the matter. Gustafson was 45 years old and came to Two Rivers from Milwaukee some months ago, being employed at the plant of the Two Rivers Plating Works. He was unmarried and made his home at 1414 Wentker court, in that city. The dead man had operated a jitney in this city during fair week and was prosecuted for violation of the speed laws last Friday, when he was fined $10 and costs in municipal court. Police officials at Two Rivers are searching for a companion who was with Gustafson in the automobile and who is said to have disappeared after the accident. The man's cap was found near the machine and may aid in identifying him. Why the man fled from the scene is not known but will be a subject of official inquiry. Gustafson was the owner of a Ford machine and it said that complaint had been made against him for reckless driving on previous occasions. Landt, who was driving the buggy with which the Gustafson machine collided is a well known young man of Two Rivers. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Monday, Aug. 30, 1915, Page 1

WILLIAM LAWRENCE TOOK A CLUB TO HIM. Wm. Lawrence Says Wenzel Sladky Assaulted Him. William Lawrence appeared in Municipal Court this morning and swore out a warrant for the arrest of Wenzel Sladky, on a charge of assault and battery. The case was adjourned one week. Late yesterday afternoon Lawrence came down Eight street in charge or (sic) Officer Royal Sniffins. He was bleeding profusely from wounds in the head and had evidently been roughly handled. It was thought by many that a knife had been used on the man and a rumor was soon current that he had been assaulted with an axe. He was not placed under arrest but taken to a doctor's office where his wounds were dressed and he was permitted to tell his story. It seems that he had trouble with Wenzel Sladky, who conducts a soloon (sic) on Chicago street, and alleges that Sladky assaulted him with a club, beating him about the head and body until forced to stop from sheer exhaustion. It was very apparent that something in the nature of a cyclone had struck him and from his battered appearance. Lawrence had been unable to stand against it. He says the assault was unwarranted and therefore filed a complaint against Sladky. The case will be watched with interest. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Wednesday, Nov. 22, 1899 P.2

SHERIFF LEHRMAN TAKES A SPIN. Sheriff Lehrman and His Turnkey Treated to a Fast Ride. Sheriff Lehrman has a handsome team of horses and what is more to the point, they are quick steppers. Being somewhat of a horseman, the gentleman takes great pride in the possession of his goers and is never willing to let an opportunity escape to tell their prowess. A strange feature is that the Sheriff has never fully realized the speed they are capable of, and was much surprised to note the manner in which they sped along yesterday. In company with the Turnkey Meany he looked (sic) up for a spin yesterday, and since that time it has been impossible to convince the official that his team is not equal to a mile a minute. While driving on Washington street the horses took a notion that they wanted to go, and go they did. People on the thoroughfare fled for their lives and the men in the buggy sawed and tugged at their reins to no purpose. One of the wheels of the buggy was demolished before the fiery steeds were stopped, but aside from a little over-exertion on the part of the drivers, no damage resulted.

MRS. ISADORE LEICHT TEN YEAR OLD BOY DETAINED AT ELLIS ISLAND, ADMITTED TO JOIN MOTHER AT TWO RIVERS Johann Schmidt, Jr., ten year old Bavarian boy who was detained at Ellis Island when he arrived on December 19 from Germany in company of his uncle and denied admission by immigration authorities because he is deaf, is enroute to Two Rivers where he will arrive tonight to join his mother, Mrs. Isadore Leicht. A message from Chicago today announced the early arrival of young Schmidt. U.S. Senator Lenroot, who was appealed to in behalf of the boy and interceded with the authorities of the immigration department, wired yesterday that the lad had been admitted and then followed the message from the boy himself at Chicago. Father Killed in War The boy's father was killed in the World War and later Mrs. Schmidt, the widow came to the United States to make her home with a brother at Two Rivers. Her young son was left behind and recently when Johann Schmidt an uncle decided to come to America the boy accompanied him. Upon arrival at Ellis Island however, the lad was refused permission to enter the United States and was about to be sent back to Europe when Senator Lenroot was appealed to. Mother has Remarried Mrs. Schmidt, who made her home with her brother Adam Nebel at Two Rivers, has remarried and is the wife of Isadore Leicht of that city. In the appeal to the immigration department it was pointed out that if the boy was sent back to Europe he would be a waif, having no relatives there. Assurance that his mother and relatives here would care for him led to the suspending of the order against his admission and there will be a happy reunion at Two Rivers tonight between mother and son.

JOS. LENHART TWO RIVERS MAN GIVES INSIDE STORY OF NAMING "MEXICO" In a communication to the Two Rivers Reporter, Andrew Baetz, a pioneer resident of that city, says that an erroneous idea prevails as how that part of Two Rivers called Mexico, got its name. He says it did not derive its name from the Indian chief, Mexico, who died in 1841 at Manitowoc Rapids. In 1862 a man by the name of Jos. Lenhart settled across the river in the southern part of the town. He came from Port Washington and was employed peeling bark for the tanneries here. This man who lived here several years, had served in the Mexican war, 1846-47, and often told about his experiences. It was through him and this fact that the South side was given the name Mexico. It is not generally known that for a time the northern part of our town in the early days, was called California. This was because a gold miner from California built himself a shanty there and resided there two or three years. His name was Farnam. This was in 1858. Farnam worked for Aldrich Smith & Co., being a relative of Aldrich's and owned stock in that company which then operated the pail factory. Farnam often opened his pocket book and showed the gold nuggets he had found in California. A few years later he again went west. The name California did not cling to the North side, but the name Mexico is still much in use. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Saturday, April 29, 1916 P.7

MR. LEVENHAGEN Last Sunday afternoon about thirty members of the newly organized Cleveland Club of Mishicott marched out to Hans Boyers' superb ranch, headed by a bugler and the Star Spangled Banner. Each man was disguised in a white plug hat and heavily armed with a stout walking stick. They captured the ranch by one bold assault and then swore in Boyer as commissary. He had to tap about half a dozen of his best cream cheeses to wash down the beer that they had ordered sent out from the village. It was really wonderful to see how much bread and cheese and beer some of those thick waisted burghers could hold. John Terens and the Elder Levenhagen took the prize for abdominal capacity but Isaac Craite would have been awarded first prize if it had not been suspected that he had not fed fair. It was asserted, and with a show of truth, that he had not the room to hold as much as Levenhagen or Terens and therefore it was impossible for him to have consumed as much. But "pshaw!" he said, "a man don't eat with his belly, he eats with his mouth and I have a bigger mouth than either of "em." Still he was ruled out by the committee and he consoled himself with more bread and cheese and beer. Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers), July 3, 1888

J. LINSTEDT MISHICOTT In company of Mr. Fischbein, of the Badger State Manufacturing Co., we took a drive into the country last Wednesday, directing our first to the village of Mishicott, where he made a short stop, and then proceeded to the beautiful and fertile farming region which lies to the north and east of that busy little burg. The farms located along the road which we traveled are said to equal any in the county in point of soil; and the tidy appearance of the barns and farm houses which we passed certainly indicated thrift and prosperity on the part of the farmers. We saw several fields of winter wheat during one drive which looked exceedingly fine. Most of the spring wheat which was up also looked flourishing. The village of Mishicott is a handsome little town, and deserves a more extended notice than we are able to give it at present; but we shall endeavor to do it justice at some future time. It has a good water-power, a flour-mill, a blacksmith shop, two churches, and a fine large school house. Hitching our horse at the hotel of which Mr. Damon is the popular landlord, we gave that gentleman a short call. Afterwards we called on Mr. Heyroth, who is doing a large mercantile business there; on Selk & Son, who have a large store and are doing a splendid business, and on Mr. John Terens, who also has a large store and deals in hardware. We looked wistfully over the river where J. Linstedt's large brewery looms up, but were unable to visit the vaults as we would like to have done had we had time. Mr. Linstedt has the reputation of making excellent beer, and from the sample we got at A.C. Terens' we should say that he deserves it. Mr. F. Zander, owns a hotel in the village which is quite a popular resort, but for want of time we failed to give him a call, as was also the case with Mr. Braasch, who keeps a hotel and saloon on the southern outskirts of the village. We noticed several new buildings, going up, which indicate that the village is neither dead nor sleeping, but full of life and activity. Manitowoc Co. Chronicle (Two Rivers), June 1, 1875

HERMAN LORENZ KOSSUTH FARMER HAD HIS DAY IN COURT AS DEFENDANT IN TWO DAMAGE SUITS IN ONE DAY Charles Kleunker, a town of Kossuth farmer, had his day in court yesterday when he was defendant in two actions, both of which were heard during the day. In both suits Kleunker was sued for $100 damages for assault and battery. He won in the first case and escaped with an assessment of $1 damages in the second. The suits grew out of trouble at a dance Feb. 20, said to have arisen over business matters. Herman Lorenz was plaintiff in the first action but a jury refused to recognize this claim for $100 and found for Kleunker; in the second action, Peter Kleman vs. Kleunker, Judge Schmidt found Kleunker "technically" guilty and fixed Kleman's damages at $1. Kleunker set up a defense that Kleman had provoked the slap in the face which he alleged the defendant had administrated to him. Mar. 15, 1916, Manitowoc Daily Herald

Newton Girl Meets With Accident And Is Seriously Injured Fears are entertained for the life of Emma Leupke(sic), a town of Newton girl, who Tuesday fell victim to an accident through which she sustained injuries of a serious nature. The girl, who is little more than a child, was taking wood from a pile to carry into the house, when a heavy timber on the top was dislodged and fell striking the girl and bearing her to the ground. The blow and heavy weight rendered her unconscious and when assistance reached her and an examination was made it was found that one rib had been broken, the spine injured and internal injuries inflicted, although as yet it has been impossible to determine the extent of the latter.

DR. LUHMAN ANOTHER HORROR. About two or three months ago Mr. Jos. Hills of Newton was bitten by a dog which he owned, and which exhibited symptoms of rabies. The dog was shot at but escaped and when last seen was chasing and worrynig (sic) cattle. The animal never returned and undoubtedly died in the woods somewhere. Since that time a couple of dogs in the neighborhood have shown symptoms of madness and been killed. On Friday night last Mr. Hills complained of spasmedic pains in his throat, inability to swallow liquids and other symptoms characteristic of hydrophobia. Dr. Luhman was called who after a careful examination pronounced the man to be a victim of that dreadful malady. He has seen him every day since and the Dr. says there is no room for doubt as to the nature of the disease. A number of cattle and hogs are known to have been bitten by the dog which bit Mr. Hills. Prompt measures should be taken to kill them in the interest of public safety. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, December 1, 1885 P.5
